Anyone know what's happening tonight in Ware? As I saw smoke billowing up from nr the river at about 5:20pm and since then heard numerous emergency vehicle sirens heading past the Ware Rd speed camera. Think they heading down somewhere between the Giplin and possibly Amwell round :oops: about.

You're not a good judge of distance! :D

A barn and farm buildings were alight ... in Wareside.

Eight fire engines attended with some services still on site at 1am.

The smoke was visible from quite a distance - Hertford and beyond. I overheard quite a few people speculating on the location, some putting it in Stansted Abbots, others on The Meads.
